Have DVD, Will Travel
Evergreen Indiana, our catalog consortium, is conducting a pilot program in which many participating E.I. libraries are allowing DVDs to transit to patrons at other E.I. libraries. In the past, patrons had to visit the E.I. library that had a particular DVD to check it out. Now, you may place holds on DVDs held at other E.I. libraries (at least those participating in the pilot), and the DVDs will be sent to you at your home E.I. library (i.e., the one whose name appears on your E.I. library card). It works just like other items that transit (e.g., books, audiobooks, etc.) Our promo trailer explains.

Find a DVD you'd like to watch at our library, and, if you have an E.I. card, place a hold on it, and if it's one of our "transiting" DVDs, it will come to you! May I make a viewing suggestion?
The Worst Movie Ever Made
(Made Funny by Rifftrax)
Rifftrax makes fun of bad movies. There are plenty of laughs here, especially since Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966) has been voted the "worst movie ever made." Click the MANOS image above to go to our Evergreen Indiana catalog to place your hold. This is one of our transiting DVDs, so you'll be good to go. If you're really interested in the film, we have a behind-the-scenes book (and a novelization) in our catalog, also available to checkout. We have several other Rifftrax DVDs, as well as its predecessor, Mystery Science Theater 3000 (all will transit, by the way).
Place your DVD holds now! Have DVD, will travel--that's our motto.
P.S. Readers my age may recognize that I based the title to this blog post on the television series, Have Gun -- Will Travel (1957-1963), starring Richard Boone as Paladin. Here's the series' theme song, "The Ballad of Paladin," sung by Johnny Western.
